Fooood!

Had to slip a quick post in before heading off for the weekend, and to say thank you for all the lovely comments you have been leaving.  They do mean a lot.

I made an exciting trip into Norwich today.  Exciting just because it’s nearly six weeks since I last went, so caught up in the busy-ness of the last few weeks as I’ve been.  Mainly it was for a trip to see Jon, my lovely hairdresser for a tidy-up, (although alas, gettting caught in the rain meant that the nice ‘blow dry’ was a blow wet by the time I got home) but it did require a trip to the Cherryleaf for a restorative coffee and fresh scone.

I now have the yarn required to do the last row on all my crochet circles to turn them into squares so I have a little portable project to pop in the car…

And I got the latest copy of Making Magazine to excite a little more inspiration…

On the way back to the car I popped into wholesome in Swan Lane to find a little something to take home for lunch, and was really excited to find Bray’s Cottage pork pies which everyone seems to be talking about and I was desperate to try.

The left hand one? Chorizo, and the other has  Onion Marmalade….Deeelicious!

Followed by….

Dr Tim Kinnaird’s wonderful Macaroons….

Salted Caramel, and Lemon….

I had to share of course…

I’ll know better next time!

So now I’m heading off to finish packing.  I have a batch of Biscotti finishing off in the oven as I type, ready to take along for leisurely elevenses over the weekend, and I need to sort everything a small dog needs for a weekend at the seaside…

He’s very excited!

About penny

I live in Norfolk, England in a cottage on the edge of the Norfolk Broads where it can be peaceful and beautiful, or wet and muddy, or occasionally wild and windswept. With me is husband Tim, Henry the elderly and opinionated tabby cat, and Higgins, the miniature dachshund with a massive personality. You’ll find me chattering on about wool and textiles, knitting and crochet, recipes, books and patterns, exhibitions and shopping and of course, the adventures of a small dog! Planet Penny has a Facebook Page, you can find me on UK Handmade and I am featured on Channel4/4Homes Favourite Craft Blog List.

    Penny! I dreamed of you and Higgins last night! That there was a picture of the two of you in the paper and I thought I should cut it out and send it to you, but suddenly there you were so I just gave it to you!
    That photo of Higgins is hilarious, I bet it would be funny rotating it until he is the right way up then cropping right in on his big smiley face he he!
    Have a lovely weekend and the food looked delicious!
    Love Alice XXX

    It’s going to be an excellent weekend , if you’ve “begun as you mean to go on” ! Pork pies ….
    And lots of exercise squaring up your circles . Not to mention chasing a beachcombing Higgins !

    Oh lovely! A trip to the seaside :-)

    I MUST try those pork pies (I wonder if they can beat the ones I get from the Highgate Farm Shop butcher? – there! I’ll probably have to buy one this morning.)

    Alice’s comment had me standing on my head to look at Higgins the right way up – a priceless portrait!!!

    Those Bray Farm pork pies are the BEST I have ever tasted- we had one of the onion marmelade ones at Holkham last year.Still linger in my memory,can’t wait to go back and eat another.
    Have a lovely weekend.

    Enjoy your break and have a lovely relaxing time. Hope Higgins enjoys his holiday – he looks as if he’s raring to go (must be the little twinkle in his eye).
